Yeah, the owners paid them lots. Now they don't want to anymore, and the poor players don't like that.
It's like the parents that give their kid too much to eat. The parents notice there's a problem, so they cut him off, trying to put a stop to it. The kid bawls and throws hissy fits. The parents try to tell him that they made a mistake, and now they both have to try to get things back to normal. But the kid's crying so loud, he doesn't hear a word, and if he does, he doesn't care.
Why should players expect the owners to keep doubling their salaries if they don't want to?
Please show me in the current CBA where it is that the CBA determines player salaries (other than the rookie salary cap). If the current CBA does not determine player salaries and, conversely, player salaries are determined by the open labour market then you are wrong, wrong, wrong and you have only the owners to blame.
